Iran: Mottaki Discussed Missing Nuke Scientists With U.N. Chief - Report

During a Sept. 29 meeting between Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki and U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon, Mottaki expressed his frustration regarding the fate of four missing Iranians, Al-Sharq Al-Awsa newspaper reported Oct. 1, citing an anonymous source from the Iranian delegation. Two of those missing are Iranian nuclear scientists, Nooyan and Shahram Amiri. Nooyan reportedly disappeared in Turkey in 2007; Amiri vanished in 2009 while performing an Umrah, a pilgrimage to the Saudi holy city of Mecca. Mottaki said Tehran believes that all are either in an American prison in an undisclosed location or had sought asylum and were transferred to another country with U.S. assistance.
